Liz: This post comes from Heather and Trevor Grant, who work with a student-led charity called The Best of Both , based at the British School of Brussels. Thanks both! For the past five years The Best of Both initiative has worked with state-sector rural schools around Bolgatanga in the Upper East of Ghana to help improve access to water, food – through school gardens – and educational resources (books and access to ICT).
Liz: We’ve been talking a bit about Khan Academy Lite on this blog recently. KA Lite is the offline version of Khan Academy, and we’ve recently seen the Kingdom of Bhutan’s first Raspberry Pi being used as a server to give kids offline access to the huge, free suite of Khan Academy’s top-quality video lectures and learning materials. You can read more about Khan Academy on their own website , but don’t just take their word for it: there’s a wealth of material online about the Khan Academy learning experience from users, if you have a few minutes to google for it
